WBCK is a radio station in Battle Creek, Michigan, United States, owned by Current Radio. It broadcasts in the AM radio band at 930 kHz and has a sports format, known on the air as The Score. WBCK featured a full-service MOR/adult contemporary format for years, evolving into news/talk by the mid-1990s.

The sale of the Battle Creek Radio Group from Clear Channel Communications to Cumulus Media has been completed. 95.3 WBXX began to simulcast with the news/talk format of AM 930 and WBXX's former adult contemporary format moved to 104.9 (formerly WRCC). 95.3 FM became the permanent home of WBCK's news/talk format.

On March 21, 2008 AM 930 dropped the simulcast with 95.3 FM and started airing a classic country format and became known as Country 93. The format has since evolved from classic country to contemporary country.

On April 10, 2012 WBCK changed their format to sports, branded as "The Score." Programming comes from CBS Sports Radio. Current Radio purchased the station from Cumulus in 2013.

Midwest Communications purchased WBCK for $175,000 on January 23, 2014.[1] The sale was approved by the FCC on March 31, 2014.[2]
